It will be 11 weeks tomorrow and for the most part things have been going very well. Cant say enough how the PT and massage helps. Doing alot of heal raises., planks and balancing on one leg. ROM is great just cant seem to do a heal raise with bad leg only. I send down the orders but its like nobody listens. in tennis shoes I can walk quite a bit with no issue…I am even shooting a few standing hoops in the driveway to get the feel. Riding a bike on flat ground is not a problem. My biggest problem is $%#@ dress shoes.
I had a three day sales meeting out of town this week…we went old school and were suited up for each day. 730 - 530 meetings and breakouts. 530-8pm team dinner… then 8pm on war stories at the lobby bar and local sports pub. I need a week break from people asking me what happened and why am I limping. But the swelling I would get each day was bad. Nothing like normal. It seems dress shoes and dress socks just dont cut it for long periods. I would ice my leg under the table during the day to try and help and I would fall asleep with ice bag at night but still had a tree trunk every day.
Got home and in one day back to normal since I have not worn a dress shoe…. I guess I have no choice but to go to grandpa shoes when I have suit up.
Planning on my first round of golf Monday with no Boot……so another milestone.
